If you walk at 195-200 and can cut to 170, you're the man

I assume you meant to type 205 and not "305", if you weigh 305lbs I wouldnt advise you ever try to fight at WW!


If you are 205 and only want to get to Welterweight, a diet overhaul and a bit of running will help you lose the weight, skipping is an ac cardio workout too, plus it improves co-ordination and balance, essential for good footwork as a fighter!


But I think the issue here is what weight you should be fighting at, if you are 205lbs, and you cut to 195-200ish I'd say you'd be better off fighting at 185lbs (middleweight), but even then, it would be best to cut as close to 185 as you can, then start doing weights to go back up in weight a little, but dont go wild with weights! A Fighter needs strength, but you can become strong without having gargantuan muscles, that make you needlessly heavier and can limit your flexability. I think for MW it would be good to cut to about 185, then go back to about 200lbs by lifting weights and taking protein supplements.

If you were going to fight at WW I'd reccomend cutting to about 175 (which could be a considerable amount considering you weigh 205 now, 30lbs is some weight!) and then lifting to get a bit more muscle mass, until you were at a max, 184lbs walking weight. For inexperienced weight cutters though, 14lbs is still a pretty intense cut, thats a whole stone of water.

Hope I've been of some help, and havnt just created a dilemma for you!

You have to work HARD, very HARD. Run like crazy and train train train. Just keep doing that and see where you're at in a couple of years.

Joe Riggs is a complete animal in the gym. That alone goes to show you the level of athleticism hes reached. It is so extremely hard to cut that amount of weight safely. I wouldn't recommend it, basically because I don't see a reason to do so. But if you really want to, I'd definitely see a licensed nutritionist before going ahead with any of the plans people will try to provide you with. See a nutritionist, and in the meantime, eat healthy, do cardio like no other, and weight train so you don't lose the muscle you currently have. Check out www.bodybuilding.com, they have tons of information on nutrition, weight training, supplements, etc.

Good luck

Losing weight is all about diet, that is the single most important thing. Than comes excercise. Get on a good diet and stick with it, push yourself in the gym or at home and you will see the pounds fly off. I recommend the Nutrisystem if you have the money to afford it.

Good luck, keep it up Just remember, your shooting for a substantial change in mass index, so don't rush it, take your time, and you'll continue to progress. Aim to lose about 1-3 pounds a week. Oh and diet, diet, and diet. Keep us all posted.

Switch to 5 small meals per day.
Stay away from supplements that boost metabolism.
Run in the morning to boost metabolism.
Work out twice per day.
Avoid splurging.
High rep lifting for a while then go to lower reps.
Constantly change workout to shock system and avoid stagnation
Moix in long runs and long interval training

Do a search on the following
Rapid weight loss "the Velocity Diet" will have you seeing amazing results....If you have a fight coming up I would suggestt doing it up until a week before the fight

"the anabolic diet" and "t-dawg2.0" are great for putting on quality masss.....assuming that you're following a good program that is

For weight loss you want to run about 3-5 miles per day without passing 1 hour. Keep hydrated at all times. Protein is a must and I would also implement a high impact kickboxing/boxing workout with that. The idea is to lose weight without losing muscle or strength. When approaching target weight then you can start implenting other types of work out. I would also suggest plyometrics 3x week.

Train.

That's it, simple.

I went from 220 lbs to 190 lbs training BJJ only 2-3 times per week for 6 months. I wasn't eating totally clean, but I cut out fast food and that type of crap.

I had a friend recently drop from 260 ish to 170lbs.
First things he changed was no soda/beer. He drank quite a bit of beer.
He did HIIT training in the morining (High Intensity Intervel Training).
Then an hour + of weight training later in the day.
He also ended up on a strict low carb diet.

He ended up gaining most of the weight right back when he stopped training.
